The brainchild of independent entrepreneur Bianca Jackson, B-Lashes Beauty Parlor both distributes lashes for a leading overseas manufacturer and dispenses them at Bianca's storefront location, a "lash lounge" that specializes in eyelash extensions. Her staff of certified technicians enhances glances with synthetic mink and silk extensions selected by clients from a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and thicknesses. Unlike many brands, which deliver tacky-looking strips or thin lashes still bearing gluey residue, Bianca's lashes are lush and luxurious, adding naturally-looking body and volume to each sultry wink. That's why they're the lashes of choice for a who's who of notable local personalities. Specialized gels bond the formaldehyde-free lashes to existing natural lashes, with results lasting more than six weeks. Clients wear the extensions while showering, sleeping, and even chopping onions. In addition to offering lash enhancements, Bianca also bolsters looks with permanent-makeup applications and waxing services.
For more than 30 years, Dr. Haroon Aziz has worked to narrow the distinction between cosmetic surgery and art. He brings his ambitions and extensive medical expertise to Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, Inc., where he oversees surgical procedures that range from face-lifts and blepharoplasty to tummy tucks. Dr. Aziz always prepares patients for major procedures with a thorough examination and consultation, during which he presents myriad image-altering options and recommends solutions based on the client's needs and preferences. Despite his wide-ranging expertise, including Botox injections, the doctor refuses to put on a one-man show, and instead relies on a licensed aesthetician to rejuvenate appearances with noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion facials.
Beyond its rust-and-silver-hued metal sign, Monarch Health's patients meet with Dr. Deborah Cole-Sedivy and an adept medical staff of certified nurse practitioners. In the cosmetic-therapy center, a trio of LightSheer Duet lasers scours skin's excess fuzz. Medical staffers bustle to and fro, working to personalize aesthetic services, such as facials and chemical peels, and families mosey into appointments for health surveys, physical examinations, and diet-and-lifestyle assessments. Therapists augment many treatment plans with natural foods and herbal supplements, which use Mother Earth's bounty to boost health without the dangers of bench-pressing a seemingly lonely bear cub.
Advanced Medical Laser Center's owner and certified cosmetic therapist, Cindy Joshi, expertly zaps fuzz from clients with quick pulses from a GentleYag or Gentlelase laser. For darker skin types, she wields the Cynosure Apogee Elite, which includes a NdYag mode for darker skin types. During each appointment, Cindy glides the laser?s beams over skin, where it blasts more than 100 hairs per second, like an insult comedian whose childhood was ruined by one bad haircut. In addition to evicting follicular skin invaders from epidermal terrains, Cindy is experienced in microdermabrasion, licensed in micropigmentation, and certified in cosmetic therapy.
Wholly dedicated to hair removal, the small team at Cleveland Laser Spa has performed tens of thousands of laser procedures between them. So confident are they in their proprietary LaserFast system that the clinic offers a two-year guarantee on all completed hair-removal regimens. This is because they know that any possible hair regrowth will occur in the first 24 months after the treatments, so if tufts sprout anew in that timeframe, the technicians will re-zap the region for free and plaster each follicle with a tiny eviction notice.
